Moartea domnului Lǎzǎrescu = The death of Mr. Lǎzǎrescu by Kino Lorber Edu (Firm)( Visual )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

63 years old. Retired engineer. Widower. Cat lover. Heavy drinker. For Mr. Lǎzǎrescu, these are some facts that describe him and his life. After having a headache for four days, he decides to call for an ambulance. When it finally arrives, Mr. Lǎzǎrescu and the EMT, Mioara, begin a journey that will take all night. He's chosen an unfortunate day to become seriously ill--the hospitals are jammed with the injured from a bus accident. Because he is old and admits to drinking, Mr. Lǎzǎrescu is treated with disdain and scorn by nurses, variously ignored, diagnosed, roundly chastised, and passed off elsewhere by supercilious doctors. Mioara stays by his side, making it her mission to get one harried doctor or one pissy nurse to take Mr. Lǎzǎrescu's condition as seriously as she does. As a portrait of a broken medical system, the film is hopelessly depressing, but as a story of the callous impersonalization we inflict upon one another, it is timeless

Offset( Visual )

"Bucharest may still be the Paris of the East, but it is now a sepia-toned metropolis, aching with nostalgia for its grand boulevards and proud architecture, for its cosmopolitan graces and humanity - all violated by a long reign of fear and repression. It is here that the story of Stefan, Brindusa and Nicu unfolds. Nicu is a middle-aged entrepreneur and uncontested lord of his domain, a large printer's shop. Stefan, a young German engineer has come to install a new offset machine in Nicu's shop. Brindusa, Nicu's translator, secretary and former mistress, falls in love with Stefan. The young German wants to marry Brindusa and take her back to Germany with him. It could be so simple if it weren't for Nicu, who simmers with an explosive mixture of rage and envy directed at his country, the West, and, above all, Stefan."--Http://movies.yahoo.com

The Death of Mister Lazarescu( Visual )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally acclaimed as one of the best films of the past decade and hailed as "a comic masterpiece" (The Guardian), THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU has been compared favorably to the films of Frederick Wiseman.. One evening, Mr. Lazarescu, who lives alone, feels a bit dizzy. He finally ends up being driven away in an ambulance, which is the start of a tragicomic odyssey. Each doctor who examines him arrives at an entirely different diagnosis, and his emergency treatment is incessantly postponed. The physicians are deaf to the entreaties of the patient and his friends, and they are devoid of sympathy for the elderly Mr. Lazarescu as he again plunges into the Bucharest night.. Shuffled from pillar to post, Lazarescu becomes wearier and weaker in the face of the medical profession's bureaucracy and casual inefficiency. A succession of colourful characters permeates the film and the combination of dry humour and "scapel sharp" satire make this Cannes Film Festival award-winner one of the year's most deeply affecting films.. Winner! Un Certain Regard Award, Cannes Film Festival. "* * * * (4 out of 4 stars)! - RogerEbert.com. "A thorny masterpiece... the film seems so absolutely real it absorbs you into its world the same way a documentary like Frederick Wiseman's 1970 "Hospital" seeps into your consciousness.Like Mr. Wiseman's epic documentaries, THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU observes the relentless processing of human beings by impersonal social institutions." - New York Times. "A tour de force of cinema verite with astonishing performances by a huge cast of small players." - Washington Post
